Air Conditioner Condensate Draining Inside Camper

I have 2013 25 ft flying cloud. Is air condition draining inside camper normal? Shouldn't it go outside camper instead of floor?

Yes, it should be. You may have a crack in your drain pan.

It should drain outside the camper. I believe the drain hose is on the roadside near the front tire. If you do not see water draining from it when the AC is running the the line is more then likely clogged. I would call your dealer and see what they recommend. It is also possible that a bug crawled in there and got stuck.

I had the same problem. My drain pan was cracked where the hose was connected.

No it is not normal. Especially 2013 that's brand new!. On occasion during very humid conditions you will have condensation form on the metal parts of the A/C accumulate and drip. Usually if your outside door is open while using the A/C. More then likely there is blockage in the drain hose or crack in the drain pan or the connection where the drain hose in connected. Mine was leaking at the pressed on tube where the drain hose attached. Other then changing the pan I used J B Weld, an epoxy, worked great! Good Luck!

Had this happen on my preowned 2008 Classic 25fb when I first cranked up the AC. Water dripped into the air distribution housing then overflowed to the hallway. I ran a length of weedeater line up the hose from the wheel well, attached the end to a drill and using the slowest speed ran it. I put a piece of hose on the end and tried blowing on it and it seemed clear. When checking the where the hose attached to the AC drain pain it appears to be dripping there. I removed all the gray caulking and applied my own silicone around the hose fitting. So far in two seasons no more leaks. I do notice when the AC is running the drainage is slow but when it cycles off the water pours out faster by the wheel well. However it still doesn't spill into the interior.

If you remove the cover of the interior ceiling unit, you should be able to see where the drain line attacheds to the condensate catch pan (assuming you have one).

Same problem with my 1999 Safari when new. Finally found factory had put a rivet through the condensate drain hose in the side wall at the mid-line rivet line. Factory installed a new condensate drain line and problem solved. It took awhile to find the root cause of the problem.

No it's not normal. Beside all the the above possible pan cracks and loose drain hoses, try a simplistic approach. Make sure the trailer is level fore and aft. If the trailer is lifted too high in the front and you are in a humid climate the AC condensate will preferentially spill out the backside of the drain pan and on your floor before draining out the drain tube in front.
